Muny Centennial Celebration

Thursday, October 3, 2024

Event proceeds benefit the Austin Founder Lions Club Vision Screening Program for AISD Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4 students.

THE AUSTIN FOUNDER LIONS CLUB invites you to a Centennial Celebration of the Lions Municipal Golf Course on October 3, 2024. The Austin chapter of the Lions Club International is the oldest Lions club in existence, formed in 1916 by the forward-thinking men and women of Austin who believed service to the public, the underprivileged, and vision impaired and/or handicapped, was a civic responsibility. The 141-acre golf course was built, designed, and managed by the Lions Clubs from its inception in 1924 until 1936 when the deed to the land was transferred to the City of Austin, along with all improvements, built structures, and equipment.

Today, a major initiative of the Austin Founder Lions Club is providing vision screening of Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4 year-olds in the Austin Independent School District. In 2023-24, AFLC screened 3224 students at 59 schools. A total of 804 or 24.9% of these students failed at least one part of the screening. Lions provided vouchers for free professional eye exams/glasses if the family lacked resources for follow-up care. Because good vision is so vital to early learning, Lions and supporters like you truly make a lasting impact in these children’s lives.

The Austin Founder Lions Club is a 501(c)3 organization
